The International Code Council on Monday will release the International Green Construction Code, Public Version 1.0 (IGCC). The IGCC incorporates ANSI/ASHRAE/USGBC/IES Standard 189.1, Standard for the Design of High Performance, Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, as an alternate path of compliance. The IGCC is intended as an overlay to complement existing codes. More information is available at Release of the IGCC will likely accelerate adoption of relatively uniform green building codes nationwide. DWT will be tracking developments in local jurisdictions.
